Fashion Stylist - Hyde Park (Chicago, IL )
In 2002, AKIRA opened the doors to its first women's clothing boutique in Chicago. Since then, the company has extended its reach to 30+ stores across the United States, as well as a thriving eCommerce business (shopAKIRA.com.) AKIRA is extremely well-poised for sustained growth as we continue to build a nationally recognized brand.
AKIRA’s culture has one very large, distinct difference from other fast-fashion competitors: Other-Worldly Customer Service and Fanatical, Obsessive Attention to the consumer’s needs and desires. The core principle for all employees at AKIRA is toAct and Think Like an Owner, and this belief can be reflected across all areas of the company.
Our Stylists are fashion leaders who serve as ambassadors for the AKIRA brand. We are driven, fanatical people that surpass individual sales goals by building a loyal clientele. Stylists must provide a high level styling experience that results in an "I LOVE AKIRA!" reaction from our clients each and every time they shop.
